The Change Forum designs and delivers tailored change and learning programs for organisation-specific contexts in addition to offering scheduled events. Change Forum public programs can be presented in-house in standard format or customised to particular needs and learning priorities.  Some of the more recent additions to our range of open learning events include:

bullet

Positive Performance Conversations: Dealing with poor performance, as most leaders will tell you, is one of the most commonly avoided and widely feared species of difficult discussions. It’s not identifying performance issues that’s the obstacle. It’s raising defensiveness - giving difficult feedback to people whose reactions are emotionally volatile and the conversational course you chart, unpredictable. A special extension to our popular Difficult Discussions clinic, this 1-day practical program provides a staged approach and carefully-crafted conversational formulas to help you become more comfortable and competent to deliver difficult feedback and deal with low performers.

Leading Culture Change: “We need to change the culture” is a much-repeated mantra heard in many management meetings, yet culture is notoriously difficult to change. While there are no magic bullets or quick-fixes, if you can understand a culture, and learn some lessons about what seems to work and what doesn’t, then you have a chance of changing it for the better.  Now offered in both 2-day and 1-day 'fast-track' formats depending on location.  Find out more >>>

bullet
